Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge


Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge Don't you just love it when you find a no-fail recipe for fudge? Not just any kind of fudge but chocolate chip cookie dough fudge? What's not to love? No sugar thermometers; no wondering whether your sugar thermometer is inaccurate because the probe touches the bottom of the pan which is obviously hotter, so you stand there holding the darn thing 'just' above. Or is that just me? ;) And then there's the times that you just can't be bothered to bust out the sugar thermometer. I mean, why bother when you discover no-fail recipes that don't call for … [Read more...]

Gingerbread Fudge


Easy Gingerbread Fudge In my last post I confessed my sins that I didn't like mint on its own. I have another confession to make too. You're all going to think I'mma crazy but I haven't even started Christmas shopping yet. I know, I know. Like I said… crazy! The main reason is cash-flow issues. I'm sure a lot of you can relate to that in this economic crappiness. The story starts and ends in happiness. Very Disney-esq, but no singing I promise. :D Boy meets girl that he's known all along. Girl likes boy, boy likes girl. They fall in love and move in together. Girl has an evil witch that … [Read more...]

Foodie PenPals #3 – August 2012

I was matched with Kristen Stone who is also a foodie blogger who features a mixture of cooked and baked goodies, you can find Kristen's food blog here.

I'm like a child when it comes to foodie penpals and this was no … [Read more...]

Funfetti Cake Batter Fudge


Funfetti Cake Batter Fudge No bake, no box mix, yet replicates the taste of cake batter. This melt in your mouth Funfetti Cake Batter Fudge is delicious and has a wonderful textured crunch from the sprinkles. Sprinkles make me happy. I love everything about them. The variety of happy colours, fun shapes, their sweet taste, the crunch, everything. They remind me of beautiful rainbows after a dull rainy day. Which is pretty ironic since they're rainbow colours. Which then leads me onto glitter, but I won't go there now! :) I've been having the urge for a while to make funfetti anything. … [Read more...]

Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes


Chocolate Fudge Swirl Cupcakes Who can resist the wonderful melt in the mouth chocolate fudge swirl cupcakes? Surely kids can't. Namely twin boys which recently turned 5! Double the trouble! I thought that they'd love the chocolatey goodness. This turned into somewhat of a craft project with the cupcake wrappers that I also made. I did buy some pretty papers to match but they ended up being too small for a cupcake wrapper. But not to fear, once I get my scalloped punches, they will come in super handy making cupcake toppers! I'm quite happy with the way these turned out. The chocolate … [Read more...]
